4.0 Volunteer Challenge Update: 95 hours

Since launching our 4.0 Volunteer Challenge two months ago, NBS team members have put in over 95 hours of volunteer time! We are at 13% of our 700 hour goal, and there are many opportunities to give back on the horizon.  Our Great Lakes Bay Region and Metro Detroit locations are planning a Habitat for Humanity build this summer and fall.  This summer we also plan on hosting a food drive to help children who no longer receive school-provided meals.

Even with increasingly busy schedules, our team members have committed to helping their communities and sharing their passions with others.  Everything from tree planting, child literacy, and empowering young girls, to animal rescue and a very special prom for adults with special needs, the outreach and enthusiasm to give back is inspiring.
